Missed Connections

In the missed connections section on Craigslist, people write about the fleeting connections they had with strangers, hoping they meet  again.

-m4w -19 (2 or 5 train)
You were the gorgeous brunette sleeping on the train. I was the guy sitting next to you. I just wanted to apologize for my repeated lack of consciousness onto your shoulder, we both got off at flatbush. Hit me back up if you think this is you.

The artist Sophie Blackall illustrated some of the connections (like the one above) and they became a book.

While this Lady Antebellum video reminds me of the missed connections above. 
It makes me smile.

And if you live in Manila, there's Missed Connections Manila.

Carved Out Trees

Toilet paper rolls, always remind me of Neil Buchanan and his amazing Art Attack creations. These images are a further example of what can be done with these simple, ubiquitous cardboard rolls.

The Beauty of Brick Walls

Today, I experienced a setback in some plans I've been making for a very long time. It was a big blow, but then the words of Randy Pausch popped into my head:

"The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something."

I want this.

Blooming Bride

I really like Glamour Fashion Editor Susan Cernek's wedding dress and hair. I think her dress would look lovely in other colors as well.

More pictures from her wedding in this feature at Martha Stewart Weddings.

Agree or Disagree?

I'd really love to know people's thoughts about this?
Me? I agree with some but not with all of what he says.
